Östhammar Municipality (Östhammars kommun) is a municipality in Uppsala County in east central Sweden. Its seat is located in the city of Östhammar.

The present municipality was created during the local government reform in the late sixties and early seventies. Already in 1967 the City of Öregrund joined the City of Östhammar in a common municipality. It was the first time a former city joined another local government unit. By 1971 the new combined city became a municipality of unitary type and in 1974 more units were added.


All towns with over 200 inhabitants in 2000, from Statistics Sweden.

Another notable village is Forsmark (pop. 59), where the Forsmark Nuclear Power Plant is situated.
